The Tutu and the Garage

The title will make sense in a minute. First, a random picture of Carrie taking care of her babies. She pushed them around the house in her stroller, after I helped her buckle them in of course.
.
.
She had her 15 month checkup yesterday and here's her stats:
Weight: 19 lbs, 4 oz .... 4th percentile
Height: 30 1/4 inches .... 40th percentile
.
Drumroll... I finished the tutu for Carrie. Be warned, it's pretty over-the-top, but she loves it. She wore it around all morning just playing. She was sad to take it off so we could get in the car for yet another neighborhood get-together. This time we had 12 moms and 24 kids (all under school age) just hanging out, and eating lunch and birthday cake. It was fun :)
.

Of course, her favorite playplace, the pantry... The sad face is because I found her and she knows I'm going to make her get out.
.

Onto the garage. Our house did not have an automatic garage door opener when we moved in. So for the last several weeks, we've been parking in the driveway. Luckily, we have a crazy long driveway, so it hasn't been so bad. This last weekend though, my dad (with a little help from Justin and even less help from me) installed the automatic opener! Yeah!!
.
It's been awesome to be able to park easily in the garage for the last few days. And just in time for the heat to come! I am loving having the van in a cool place, (cooler than the driveway at least).
.
And lucky us, we can fit both of our cars in the garage! It's not full of junk! Imagine that, a two car garage that actually holds two cars!
.
.
Not only does it hold both the cars, it also holds our new deep freeze chest freezer. It is currently filled with 18 pints of strawberry jam and a few homemade freezer meals that I'm sure will come in handy on a day that I don't want to cook dinner.
.
.
A follow-up on my craft projects, I finished Carrie's "big girl room" curtains. Seriously the easiest curtains ever. Hem all four sides and sew a strip of fabric along the back to put the curtain rod through. Scrunch it, and tah-dah! Done! I worked a little on the bedskirt, but I didn't take a picture of it because it's still just strips of fabric... not much to look at.
.
.

Well it's about time to go finish making dinner. (The potatoes are the easiest and have been baking themselves for the last 25 minutes. It already smells yummy.)

The curtains look great. I love Carrie's tutu, it is adorable. I can't wait to see you guys!
That's great that both cars fit into the garage. You are smart to get the freezer. You can buy in bulk on sale and save alot with meat, etc.
